Short summary
In this work we explore how magnetic resonance information can be obtained from simple field dependencies of reaction yields for recombining radical pairs, without actually driving any resonance transitions. An ESR spectrum can be observed in the region of relatively weak but nonzero applied field due to interference in the coherently created spin system of the radical pair. We also discuss connections between the level (anti)crossing and conventional magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
